Bringing charm to the Iranian capital with some of the most beautiful Persian orchestra pieces and musical performances in jam-packed concert halls of Tehran, the most prestigious musical event in Iran is underway.

The 38th Fajr International Music Festival opened in Tehran on February 17. While the capital hosts over 30 musical bands from across the country, foreign musicians have also found an opportunity to go on stage, including these Hungarian musicians.

Seven concert halls in Tehran as well as over 30 other arenas in 14 provinces are hosting this year’s event.

Over 2,000 musicians are taking part either in the competitive “Barbad Prize” section or the noncompetitive pop, traditional and orchestral music sections. But what’s makes this year’s event even more special is performance of the Iranian Police Force Music Band.

But still as always, the traditional and folk music sections are under the spotlight, adding glitz and glamour to the name “Fajr,” which means “Dawn” in Farsi and refers to a ten-day period that led to the victory of the Islamic Revolution. This has been the reason to hold cultural events, including theater, film and music festivals under the same name every year.

The final part of a trio of cultural events to honor the victory of the Islamic Revolution is currently underway and will continue until February 22.
